Kanye West is under investigation following an alleged altercation with a fan.
According to FOX 11, Ye was leaving Soho Warehouse in downtown L.A. around 3 a.m. on Thursday (Jan. 13) when a fan asked for an autograph. The man claims he saw Ye sitting in his car and approached him. After “words were exchanged,” the fan alleges that Ye jumped out of the car and punched him, knocking him to the floor.
Police were called, but Ye had left by the time they arrived. The LAPD is investigating the case as a misdemeanor battery, a crime that carries a maximum jail sentence of six months.

Video obtained by TMZ shows an enraged Ye arguing with someone between Wednesday night and Thursday morning, but it’s unclear if the footage is of the actual incident.
“Did y’all say that or not? Did y’all say that or not?” he appears to say. “‘Cause that’s what happened right fu**in’ now.”
Earlier in the evening, Kanye was spotted partying with his girlfriend Julia Fox, along with Madonna and Antonio Brown at Delilah in West Hollywood. The couple showed PDA before Ye left the club and Julia stuck around.
